Tipping point of the seasons

It was yesterday. I woke up to pale light on my pillow, not the bright sun that has been there every day in February. By 9:30 am the mist had burned off and the day was blazing hot as usual. Today, in contrast, the same mist was there in the morning, and was still in the air during our walk, not burning off until 10:30 am.

The season is changing. School starts next week.

The mist will stay late in the morning and arrive earlier in the afternoon until one day it lasts all day. Then it will be winter.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
